  • Battling CPUs at $60 is going to be a tough call. Do you throw the best hardware around the chip that money can buy to compare the absolute limits of the hardware under ideal conditions, or do you keep it more reasonable for the price bracket it is intend...

  • Minimal Upgrade from Haswell, More Expensive than Haswell

  • First of all, the ASRock Z170 Extreme 4 has proven to be a very stable motherboard, with good looks to match. It's inexpensive considering the functionality you'll gain. ASRock might be known as the ‘budget' brand, but they certainly don't actually skimp...
